GREENOUGH, Mont., May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the temps warm up, the family travel season heats up as well. The Resort at Paws Up in Montana celebrates a summer made for families with a host of outdoor adventure activities and special value offers for exclusive luxury homes. All new for families this summer, Paws Up announces The Sky Line Aerial Adventure Course and complimentary access to the expanded Kids Corps of Discovery program, which now includes a sapphire-hunting experience.
The Sky Line
For more than ten years, The Resort at Paws Up has been an epic resource for thrill seekers—from cattle drives and rappelling down 180-foot cliffs to ATV jaunts and more. Now, Paws Up raises the bar with a challenging high-ropes course. The course is the newest outdoor adventure amongst more than 50 resort activities, all run in-house by the expert guides of Paws Up. Adventurers (or folks just wanting to conquer a fear of heights) can tackle the two-hour, 10-platform tour, complete with 22-foot drops and a 40-foot free fall—for a physical and mental challenge!
The Sky Line is open to all skill levels, with routes for beginner, intermediate and expert climbers. To celebrate the grand opening of The Sky Line, all resort guests can enjoy a complimentary introductory tour, with additional tours offered at $70 per person. The Sky Line is available for ages 8 and up (minimum weight: 60 lbs.; maximum weight: 265 lbs.) and will be open daily from 8:30AM to 5PM. Reservations are required.
Kids Corps of Discovery
Paws Up's always-expanding Kids Corps of Discovery program offers a plethora of age-appropriate itineraries for toddlers, teens and in-betweens. Signature activities include a petting zoo, a go-kart track, horse painting (that's right, they paint on a real horse!) and hatchet throwing. New educational and hands-on activities for Summer 2016 include:
- Sapphire Mining Children will sift through special dirt from a local mine to uncover real sapphires. Those who find gems can have them cleaned and turned into real jewelry!
- Blackfoot River Kayaking
- Old West .22 Rifle Range
Paws Up's youngest guests can take full advantage of The Resort's 37,000-acre playground, complete with wilderness activities, educational journeys and classic summer camp games like capture the flag. The Kids Corps of Discovery provides comprehensive itineraries for kids ages 4 to 17, with options for half-day, full-day and evening schedules. While each itinerary is fully tailored to the age group, all feature the opportunity for young people to immerse themselves in the history, environment and wildlife that define Montana. Nanny service is also offered for kids under the age of three for $25 per hour (with a two-hour minimum). This service is ideal for couples seeking a romantic candlelight dinner on the Blackfoot River or some quality "alone time."
